Zulu. 1816–1906.


The Zulu kingdom in its independent form existed for a surprisingly short time.It emerged during a period of conquests in the 1820’s,and was broken by the British in the Anglo-Zulu war of 1879.However,in the same way that the line of the Zulu Royal House has continued,unbroken,into modern times so the ethos of the old Zulu military system continued to dominate the thought -patterns of the Zulu-speaking peoples long after the Zulu army itself had been dispersed.Indeed,the repercussions of the rise and fall of the old Zulu kingdom continued to influence events in the post-aparthied Republic of South Africa today.
